ALL CLASSES MOVING ONLINE (UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE)

Beginning Friday, March 13, ALL classes at the SHU Luxembourg campus moved and will run ONLINE.

All classes will remain ONLINE for the foreseeable future.

The University’s decision was not taken lightly, but it was the most responsible decision, given the recommendations from public health officials to avoid when possible bringing together groups of people for events and gatherings in spaces that do not allow for social distancing. We want to emphasize that there are no known or suspected cases of coronavirus on campus, but we want to provide faculty, students, and staff with as much guidance as possible.

We encourage all students to be as proactive as possible and prepare for the switch to online instruction.

Tips for Success in Online Courses

All further course communications will be handled by the course professors directly. Correspondence will be made through SHU email, Blackboard, and other enterprise applications supported by the University (including Blackboard, WebEx, Microsoft Office 365 and Lecture Capture). All students are required to use and check this account frequently.

Until further notice, please contact SHU Luxembourg Staff by email or phone only.

The University deeply appreciates all that faculty are doing to ensure that our educational, research, and service missions continue, as we lead our students and the community through this unprecedented public health challenge. We of course also appreciate the flexibility of our students during this time. The University’s leadership is continuing to work closely with public health officials to keep up to date on the situation and to implement appropriate policies. For more information about the coronavirus and the University’s response, visit our dedicated website.

As a reminder, we encourage you to refer to local resources available, such as the Covid-19 Helpline (phone number 8002 8080) and a government-run website. The Office of Global Affairs and your local staff are also available for help.

Feel free to reach out to SHU Luxembourg Staff with any questions.
